Please excuse the potentially beginner question, as I am very new to many of the finer aspects of this hobby... Why are there two F and J keys in the Alphas set? Are they different in any way?

Very excited for this keyset, building my first DIY board around it!

Welcome! One pair are the scooped homing keys (instead of bumps or bars) and the other pair are normal keys.

I joined this group buy on Kono this morning. I just found this thread and noticed that the group buy should have closed on the 11th. Is it still open or was it a glitch that let me join?

The Group Buy window for Troubled Minds is closing today. Due to heavy interest in the set, as well as several kits not reaching the MOQ specified by our internal pricing model, we are going to be keeping Troubled Minds available for purchasing beyond today. Our plan is to place an order with Signature Plastics for approximately 125% of the total group buy orders made by end of day today. We will then put hard inventory caps on each of the keycap kits, meaning when they run out, they are gone until the next group buy (which may be a while!).

In addition, at midnight tonight (PST), we will be raising the prices on the kits by $5 per set for Alphas, Novelties, Non-Standard, Purple Mods and TKL sets and $3 per set for all remaining kits.

Ya, I should have read the whole thread before posting that.

Surprisingly you can still buy them on Kono. Most of the kits are available. I am not too fond of the mods, but just join the GB for Alphas and Numpad, will combine them with contrasting mods from other sets (will look great with Symbiosis mods). Still on track to be delivered in March 2019.

Im really glad that kono ordered extras and let us keep ordering after the initial buy closed. Initially I only bought alphas, mods, and novelties but my plans have changed a bit since then so it was a blessing to be able to grab the non-standard and numpad kits off of there.

This is from the kono.store weekly group buy updates page. Probably the best place to check for updates on this set now:

"SA Troubled Minds

Signature Plastics hustled for us and is aiming to have this set done by the end of January! That means we would like get the sets into the warehouse in February 2019 instead of March. Thanks, SP!"

Thanks! 01/24 update from Kono Store reads as follows:

"SA Troubled Minds

Signature Plastics encountered some difficulty with the purple resin, so they need a bit more time. They estimate early to mid-February ship date."

From kono update:

SA Troubled Minds
Signature Plastics reached out to provide some details about an unexpected challenge. The resin was stuck in the Polar Vortex in the Midwest for 4 days and now we are buried under 2 feet of snow [and the office is closed], but it should be no longer than a week. If you didnt know, that region of the US experienced -40 F / -40 C or lower temperatures. Were glad their team chose to stay safe.

Hang tight everyone the caps should be finished very soon!

From the most recent Kono Store weekly update:

"SA Troubled Minds
Signature Plastics has completed production! The set will be shipped to us today from SPs facility in Oregon.

Due to high volume of sales, we were able to do a second production run that will be completed much faster than typical SP production times: batch two will be done by middle of April. All groupbuy backers and most pre-sale buyers will be getting their keycaps from the original shipment, whereas those who most recently purchased the set will get theirs fulfilled in the second batch."

If anyone can help me get a hold of the Non-Standard kit I would really appreciate it. I went from TKL to 65% full time since I joined the GB :(

Nothing yet for me. I bought my kits after the initial group buy so I'm curious and nervous as to which batch my order will be fulfilled from.

My metal build EVA01 arrived in the mail today, was looking for keycaps to match and found out this GB had EVA01 novelties just now. Will Kono be selling extras when they hit the warehouse? Do we need 2x novelties to fill out TKL/100% with EVA01 mods?

You should only need one set of novelties to fill any board, not sure about extras though.

Signature Plastics has shipped us the orders and they have arrived at the warehouse this week. Fulfillment for backers and the majority of first-come-first-serve buyers will start early next week.
